Homosexuality and the Counsel fo the Cross

[The papal magisterium counsels gay Catholics to join their sufferings to the Cross of Christ. This counsel raises questions concerning its assumptions about the complex reality of homosexuality, suffering as a dimension of human sexuality, and the meaning of the Cross. The implied theological anthropology may lead to the conclusion that a “crucifixion” of the homosexual inclination is required. While sexuality entails suffering, a theology of the Cross is needed that will also signal the possibility of Christian joy and hope realized in the form of self-giving love.]
